Collection: The Clone Wars [Season 2]
Source: The Clone Wars (Season 1 Episode 8: Bombad Jedi)
Availability: July 2009
This clone commander leads the Elite Corps and serves under Jedi General Yoda during the Clone Wars. His armor bears the distinct markings of the 41st Elite Corps, a unit Gree has nicknamed "Green Company."
We admit it. We love Commander Gree so we doubt we can guarantee impartiality in this review. We are privileged to finally receive Commander Gree in his pre-Episode III gear, as a phase I clone trooper. You might be surprised, but this action figure is first-rate and probably champions the line so far as one of the best figures yet! Hasbro has "done us real good" with him and he is no doubt getting love from others as he doesn't sit on the pegs too long. And although it is really nothing more than a repaint with some extra parts, the final product is striking and functions in The Clone Wars line as a remarkable and standout addition. Probably the simplest way to describe his appearance in the television show would be to say he is a dark green version of Commander Bly. For he has solid green armor on his thighs, the signature chest stripe down his middle front and a widening stripe from the bottom to the top of his helmet. It is nice to see a quasi-familiar pattern orchestrated in 'Gree-n' style although we wish that his battalion had a little more detail on them than the obligatory arm and helmet stripes (and as a result not looking much different that a clone trooper sergeant from Episode II). Once his comely helmet is removed, a distinct head sculpt (with a very distinct haircut) is evident. Hasbro expertly recreated the portrait identically to what was seen in the television series. Hasbro's sculptors nailed this one! Gree has a shaved head with two brown tracks atop his crown that meet at a point at the posterior bottom of his head. This attention to detail is a more than impressive execution by Hasbro and we congratulate them! It is truly a remarkable task for Hasbro to "un-clone" the clones to give them unique personality and distinction while really only working with one template. But of course, we have to also give credit to Dave Filoni first. Hasbro is merely replicating was what previously established by the television show. (But we rave because they have done it so well!)
Status: Commander Gree is a retool of 2008's TCW Clone Trooper (No. 5) figure with an all-new torso and head sculpt. The figure has also been repainted.
